Comments
Comments: A beautiful day for a run over Chocorua. The forecast showers never materialized while I was out, so it turned into a mostly sunny affair. Taking the quiet way to and from the summit, meant I only ran into folks once on upper Brook, and was alone again once on Hammond. Plenty of folks about the summit, though it was windy and cool, so people were coming and going in short shifts. Only a few on top while I was. Hammond was tricky to descend, as there was still some significant leaf cover, and unseen obstacles called for caution. Old Mail Road made a nice connector over to Fowler's Mill Road, which I took back to my car. A great few hours out in the Sandwich Range!
